California Fall League Rosters Updated

The California Fall League's inaugural season got underway Sept. 23. There were several changes to the rosters announced previously. Braves second baseman Marcus Giles, one of the top prospects that had been scheduled to play in the league, was replaced on the San Bernardino Sand Dragons roster by Braves second base prospect Jose Cepeda, who split the season between Class A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Greenville.

In another notable change, Brewers second-round pick Kade Johnson will make his pro debut in the league for Lake Elsinore. Johnson, who signed too late to play this summer, replaces Obispo Brito as the Brewers catching entry for the Land Sharks.

Here are the rosters, with changes:
